Interior design is the process of shaping the experience of interior space, through the manipulation of spatial volume as well as surface treatment. Not to be confused with interior decoration, interior design draws on aspects of environmental psychology, architecture, and product design in addition to traditional decoration. Interior design is a creative practice that analyzes programmatic information, establishes a conceptual direction, refines the design direction and produces graphic communication and construction documents. When doing interior design it is necessary to think of the house as a totality; a series of spaces linked together by halls and stairways. It is therefore appropriate that a common style and theme runs throughout. This is not to pronounce that all interior design elements should be the same, but they should turn together and complement each other to strengthen the whole piece. A means to create this idea or storyline is with the well considered use of color. Color schemes in general are a neat manner to unify a collection of spaces. The interior design’s biggest enemy is boredom. A well designed room always has, depending on the size of it, one or more focal points. A focal point must be dominant to draw attention and interesting enough to encourage the spectator to see farther. A focal point, thus must bear a lasting impression, but must also be an inbuilt piece of the decoration linked through scale, style, color or root word. Colors have a definite impact on the atmosphere that you want to make when doing interior design.
